Do you guys realise Dogecoin was created as a joke crypto currency? It's only through the crypto hysteria at the time that it took off. Unlike all other major cyrptos there's also no limit on the number of coins that can be mined so their value will be constantly eroded.
Recently I've found out about Animecoin existence https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/animecoin/... My treasure
If seriously, I think Ripple as good crypto as Bitcoin is. By some parameters it even exceeds btc. So, if I had some extra money, I would invest them in xrp... or ani (Animecoin)
Well, they serve different purposes so I would not be inclined to compare them. I was originally against ripple on principle as its totally centralised by nature. Those that admin. it could dilute the overall coin circulation on a whim. That said, many folks have made quite a lot of money on it thus far.
It stands to reason on the altcoins - many into fewer use cases simply won't work.
I guess eth and btc should be ok...or at least they're ok for the moment in any event. They both have their own challenges tough. Will btc end up as a store of value or transactional (day to day). It's looking like the former - albeit that lightning network may mean that it could potentially achieve the latter. Critics say that store of value is a cop out and it shows that btc has no utility. Then again, it could make modest inroads into gold ...gold is a store of value because people will it. I dont buy into this crap that it has tangible uses and other utility...it has but they're limited.
Ethereum was developing nicely with a hell of a team of developers behind it...but it seems to have hit a snag - scalability that calls it into question. The solutions that were bandied about seem to be sliding timewise. I flip flop on this but as i write this, i dont think id place money in it....but that view is subject to change.
